Explore this Point Area beach with huge spherical stones lining the beach. This is an amazing spot for a sunset or beach picnic.
This scenic beach is a part of Schooner Gulch State Beach in Mendocino County. The beach is named after it's iconic sandstone "bowling balls" found there. There's parking along the west side of the highway with two trailheads. The southern trail will take you to Schooner Gulch Beach.
Legend has it that Schooner Gulch is named after a story in which a schooner was spotted, stranded on the beach in the mouth of the gulch; however, in the morning showed no evidence of being there.
